The ANT Group Offers Better Ways to Design & Construct

Born out of the conviction that “there must be a better way” to design and construct the built environment, The Architecture and New Technologies Group (The ANT Group) is driven to find and incorporate technological solutions that benefit the AEC industry. As a full-service architectural firm and design technologies research and development lab, our focus is on minimizing wasted time and material, and optimizing the design process for our clients. We are the architects that use technology to save time, money and heartache. When you work with The ANT Group, whether you’re a private client, an AEC firm, or a property owner, the end result of an optimized process is an optimized building.

“Using the new design technologies in the old paradigm is like buying a nail gun and using it to pound nails.”

– Jim Balding, Founder, The ANT Group
